22. I wouldn't say "worry"...
Mon Jul 11, 2016, 11:03 PM
Jul 2016

I've been a "victim" of a crime a few times, but I wouldn't say that I spend time actually worrying about it; it's more an acceptance that there are more criminal elements at large than I would like, and that something will likely happen again one day.

That said, there have been a pattern of home robberies within a 5 mile radius of my area (per the local news, and police FB pages), and admittedly it's closer to home than I would like.
